Restoration Community Church — Our New Centennial Location
Over the past few months, as a Site Pastor, I’ve had the privilege of leading Restoration Community Church‘s development of a new satellite location in the Centennial, CO area. On September 20th we successfully launched our first service. It was exciting and rewarding to see God at work. We had 196 people attend our first service, held at Walnut Hills Elementary.
Preparing for the launch of this new location was much like the first time I planted a church in Durango, Co. It’s always about people. God raised up an amazing core team to help launch this new location. Over 100 people fromRestoration Community Church in Denver agreed to help with the launch of this new location. Of this group, 40 played critical roles in the logistical side of launching and establishing our new church location.
We decided to meet at Walnut Hills Elementary, which is centrally located in the Centennial area. With the help ofChurch on Wheels, we were able to put together a portable strategy for setup and take down on a weekly basis.
God showed us so much favor in our launch. I think I am most inspired by the team I served with in launching this new site. Volunteers worked hard to develop the needed systems to support every step of making our new church location a successful launch. It is amazing to watch God’s church at work!
Prayer was our biggest weapon and tool for building this new church. A week ago, I prayer walked with a few other people who were part of our launch. As I walked the streets surrounding Walnut Hills Elementary School, I felt God whispering in my soul. He was saying over and over, “Let me do the heavy lifting. Let me carry this church forward. I will do the hard work.”
When Sunday arrived and we opened our doors, God did a mighty work. People showed up and amazing things happened. It is a great start for the Restoration Community Church Centennial Location.
Special thanks goes out to Breakthrough Leaders Network for hosting our planning team’s meetings in their Centennial office.
